HomeSaver Air Cooled Windbeater, 6". Adaptors included.
We can also offer this cap for $158 without the base trim which is needed to shed water away from dripping into chimney pipe below it unless you add a storm collar which may or may not completely address this concern. This base plate will most likely need trimming or will hang over more chimney pipe but is made for the largest pipe on the market so you can modify it for your situation.
We also have trim plates for masonry chimneys available, as well as these caps for 7" and 8" interior diameter chimneys and will send you a quote if desired. email email@example.com
This cap is an aftermarket upgrade for locations where wind related downdrafting causes smoke to enter the home thru a wood stove or wood stove insert. As the wind hits this cap the shapes force suction up the chimney pipe keeping pressure from pushing smoke into the home. This will only stop wind driven back smoking symptoms.
For stoves that smoke upon start up, with "non self starting chimneys" a Draw Collar may be useful if the chimney is already 2' taller than the nearest point on the roof within 10' horizontally. Click here to see the Draw Collar.

This Windbeater cap is similar to a Vacustack or other styles meant to keep wind from causing downdrafting smoke coming into the room.
